BRISTOL — Bristol resident Victoria Grace has the best view in town.
For more than 20 years now, Grace has climbed up the series of staircases and rickety wooden ladders to the tip-top of Holley Hall twice a week to wind the clock that was installed by the E. Howard Company of Boston in 1884.
Grace inherited the job from her brother-in-law, Roland Benedict, years ago after her sister turned it down. Benedict’s father before him had wound the clock.
